About dashboard beam

A sub-site of dmcbeam.org, dashboard.dmcbeam.org wants to prove the "you get what you measure" principle by aggregating a sample of key metrics a healthy community should care about, how they are compared to other communities and how they are trending.

 

It also links these metrics to the "anchored projects/plans/programs" that are being funded in our area to track how well these projects are doing in contributing to the overarching community metrics.The site is another way to "beam" up transparency, accountability, responsiveness and process-centric attributes of a community-wide social system. To shine light on its effectiveness and force intentional collaboration.

 

Legend:
Official Metrics are reports that have been commissioned by well-known organizations and created by recognized data analytic groups such as Wilder Research.
Key Beam Metrics are those extracted by openBeam from trusted sources and selected subjectively by openBeam.

DMC Transportation Plan

Plan Description

While there are several different plans being proposed, there is a need to interconnect all those piece parts to integrate them into the transportation framework of the DMC transportation vision.

Strategies (How)

While there are several different plans being proposed, there is a need to interconnect all those piece parts to integrate them into the transportation framework of the DMC transportation vision:  primary function of this Transportation Plan is to provide investment guidance for DMC transit and transportation infrastructure funding.

This recognizes the need for enhanced workforce access and quality transportation options to grow a competitive, diverse, and sustainable economic center in Rochester. The transportation element of the DMC Development Plan serves as a guiding investment strategy based on sound market analysis and full integration with the 20-year DMC development program. It guides investment of DMC dollars directed to transit and transportation projects, including $116 million in State Transit Aid (approximately $47 million of which will come from Olmsted County), and public infrastructure funding to support other transportation related improvements such as streets and parking structure.

The strategy has been established to leverage DMC funding with City/County Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) funding, projects identified in the sales tax extension (approved in 2013), current and future State (MDOT)

Results (Work Products)

  1. Efficient, convenient and accessible transportation systems that provides favorable cost structure commuters, employers and the public sector
  2. More marketable downtown properties
  3. More efficient and effective use of existing and future parking supplies
  4. Better efficiencies in the use of land and reduced parking development costs (for both private and public sectors)
  5. Greater transit ridership
  6. Reduced traffic congestion
  7. A strong partnership between the public sector, Mayo Clinic and the downtown business community
  8. Measurable success based on consensus targets for access and growth

Indicators (How do we know we are achieving the results?)

  1. Organization that effectively supports and advocates the long-term economic vitality and livability of the downtown
  2. Downtown parking to support economic development goals
  3. Increased percentage of downtown employees commuting by transit from 10% (2008) to 23-30% by 2035
  4. Increased number and percentage of commuter bike trips to downtown Rochester from an existing bike/walk mode split of 7% (2008) to 13% by 2035
  5. Increased percentage of downtown employees commuting by carpool/vanpools to downtown Rochester from 12% (2008) to 14% (2035)
  6. Increased employee awareness of the Rochester Access Management Authority and alternative mode transportation options
  7. System-wide partnerships to support parking and TDM efforts/mission

Available Description

Published in February 2014, the Maxfield study found that the vacancy rate for affordable senior rentals was 0.8 percent in December, compared to a 4.6 percent vacancy in senior market rate housing. To meet the anticipated demand, the report suggests that an average of 126 affordable senior housing units need to be built annually through 2020, compared to the average of 8 units a year that were added from 2006 to 2012. The demand for market rate senior housing is expected to go from adding 16 units a year to an average of 251 a year. Many such projects are already under construction or in the pipeline for coming years.
